Paying it forward in Nepal (IE Program Lecture Series)

Wishing to give back to his country, Nepal, Sharad Rai founded YouMe School in his remote village in Nepal in 2011. The organization he founded built a second school in 2017. Currently, there are more than 500 students studying in those schools. Some children have to commute on foot more than four hours every day to get to the school. Still, they are determined to attend YouMe School. Sharad Rai finds that there is nothing more exciting or fulfilling than shaping the future of young children. He will be sharing his story of building schools in Nepal and how his organization is shaping the future of kids in his village through education.
